The Group Policy: Network Access Protection (NAP) Extension protocol specifies functionality to control client computer access to network resources. Access can be granted or restricted per client computer based on its identity and its degree of compliance with corporate governance policy. For non-compliant client computers, NAP specifies automatic methods to reinstate compliance and to dynamically upgrade access to network resources.
Sections 1.7 and 2 of this specification are normative and can contain the terms MAY, SHOULD, MUST, MUST NOT, and SHOULD NOT as defined in RFC 2119. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
